While it won’t compare to last weekend’s blizzard, there could be another significant snowfall in Milford and the area, according to the National Weather Service, which issued a hazardous weather outlook for the weekend early Friday morning.
But for now, most forecasts are just calling for a few inches of snow spread out over the long weekend.
“A coastal low will be developing on Saturday and will track southeast of Long Island Saturday night into Sunday,” according to the weather service. “There is a chance that this low could bring significant snowfall primarily to areas east of New York City.”
For now, this storm becoming significant here is still just a possibility — not a definite.
Friday is expected to be partly sunny with a high near 46. Then some wintry weather could move in. There is a chance of rain and snow between midnight and 4 a.m. here, then a chance a of snow after 4 a.m. Saturday.
Here is the outlook for the weekend.
